FD takes home type V forestry truck thanks to AFG grant

First AFG vehicle award in New Hampshire since 2018

There’s nothing like the satisfaction when a department gets the gear they need to help them protect their personnel and their community better.

Our friends at New Hampshire’s Tamworth FD recently took delivery of a beast of a new apparatus. Funding their award? A $180K AFG grant for their type V forestry truck:

“Final inspection is now complete with no issues found at the factory. Assistant Chief Matt Baumann and Firefighter Zach Remick will be making the 1200 mile journey home with it. We look forward to being able to place the truck in service to serve the town for many years to come. Special thanks goes to Alexis Fire Equipment Company Lakes Region Fire Apparatus Inc First Responder Grants, LLC and all of our town residents for making this happen.”

Congratulations, Tamworth FD!

Firefighters

Since 1986, the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation has been supporting Maine communities. As part of their 2020 grant process, the Foundation awarded fire grants totaling $115,000 to 4 Maine fire departments and First Responder Grants clients and students:

  • Randolph Fire Department, Maine, $40,000 for turnout gear
  • Nobleboro Fire Department, Maine, $20,000 for auto extrication equipment
  • Lebanon Fire Department, Maine, $35,000 for station addition
  • Turner Fire Department, Maine, $20,000 for auto extrication equipment

“Grants are available from generous private citizens and nonprofit organizations too,” says Greg Bavis, Grants Consultant at First Responder Grants. “Public safety agencies are trying to bridge those difficult gaps between their budget and their needs. State-focused programs such as the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation are making it possible for these four Maine fire departments to improve how they protect their communities and their personnel.”
